Something new from Compulsion games. Has a real Bioshock feel to it. You can download a playable trial that lets you play for 45 mins. After that, you buy it as is for $30 cad and that entitles you to the present Alpha and future upgrades to a full game.

Interesting premise, pay for a game during the development stage. Basically, lets you lock it in for $30 I assume the finished game will be a $60 hit to the pocket book. It can be bought from Xbox live, steam or GoG.

thoughts observations?

    Link?

    In general though, don't think I'd buy something that's incomplete to begin with.

    No shit really Jux? I never saw that one coming.LOL

    the premise is similar to a kickstarter... makes it so the company can afford to stay in development and put out a great product.....as opposed to push it out the door and fix the buggy mess with patches.

    Many people decided long ago they were going to buy this game ( like right after E3) so paying now buys it cheaper and lets you explore and be part of the alpha/beta process.

    I like the strategy, I am not sure if I will buy it now but only because it isnt something I will probably buy until after the fall push is over. By then I will hopefully get it for sale.

  • I requested a code for it and just received it this morning. I'm excited to jump in and see what it's all about.
  • I went back to my free preview for another try... I had set the game down the day it went live because I found the premise of the game disturbing.
    Perhaps I am wrong or just looking at this too much from my own perspective but they really seem to be making some pretty negative statements about mental illness and depression. Maybe I am just being too sensitive, maybe it gives a positive statement later in the narrative. Maybe they are trying to stimulate a discussion....I just find the premise and theme of the game to be pretty distasteful. Does anyone else feel similarly or is it just me?
